Preparations for the release of the Elf City have been made today, with some updated graphics of Lleyta and other elf-quest related areas (well needed in my own opinion).
Elf City - Quest Areas ImprovementsToday, there's a big batch of graphical improvements to Lletya and the elven quest areas for you to enjoy, as you skill and quest your way towards the Elf City requirements.Complete the prerequisites for this year's biggest update in a better-looking Tirannwyn.Let's Getcha to LleytaToday's graphical updates are focused around four quests: Underground Pass,Mourning's End I, Mourning's End II, and Within the Light. The areas in which those quests take place have been spritzed, shined and retextured, and look better than ever.We've also rebuilt the town of Lleyta with some elegant woodwork, giving it an atmosphere unique to the elves' woodland realm.
Within the Light and Catapult Construction are the quest requirements for entering Prifddinas when it opens later this year. Completing them and their pre-requisite quests is quite a feat, so now's the time to get stuck into some elven adventuring.
Remember, too, that the crystal amulet will give you daily bonus XP towards the Prifddinas skill requirements. It will also allow you to start collecting new crystal resources for use when the city opens. Get hold of one of these when you subscribe at 25% discount in our Summer Special membership offer.
We're getting closer to the Elf City launch, so it's high time for a walk in the forest. Take a look, and let us know your thoughts on the forums.

We have also got two new SGS outfits in the game today. One of them based of a suggestion I put up myself on the forums as the great aviansie and Armadyl fan I am (QFC: 309-310-871-65260118). I am of course very happy to see this my idea put into the real game!
Solomon's General Store - Vyrewatch and Aviansie outfits
The Character Team have been hard at work over the past few months, working to bring you the fourth instalment of their outfit showcase.
This week, we are proud to announce two cosmetic override outfits: one inspired by the deadly Vyrewatch of Darkmeyer, and the other by the proud aviansie race.
The Vyrewatch Skyshadow Outfit is a fangtastic dark delight, straight from Morytania. Along with your vampyric ensemble you’ll receive both a Vyrewatch Staff and Wings.
My inspiration for this kit came from the original concept art and the fantastic Vyrewatch storyline. I tried to keep it simple while instilling the key motifs and colours.
With his recent win against Bandos, Armadyl’s followers are more prominent than ever. Join them with the brand new Aviansie Skyguard Outfit, while joining the battle against injustice with your grand Aviansie Greatbow.
I took my inspiration for this outfit from the awesome aviansie models in the game. I know this is one you guys have been asking for on the forums, so I hope you enjoy it!
Both outfits are now available in my store, so stop by for a closer look. As always, you can get your hands on more RuneCoins by redeeming Bonds in-game, by clicking ‘Buy RuneCoins’ within Solomon's General Store, or direct from our website.
Make sure you drop by and say hello in-game some time. You can find me just south of the Grand Exchange!
Until next time,
Any and all comments on these two newsposts are very welcome as usual.
